The Book of Acts does not specifically mention its author, but many indicators point to Luke, "the beloved physician." The author was the same person as the one who wrote the Third Gospel. Written in about 62 A.D.
God has given us the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit to enable us to be witnesses of the good news of forgiveness and life in Christ.
But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Peter’s sermon quoting the prophet Joel.
And it shall come to pass in the last days saith God I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
Therefore did my heart rejoice and my tongue was glad moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
God has fulfilled his promise to his people by raising up Jesus and by granting through him the forgiveness of sins. "Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses".
And we declare unto you glad tidings how that the promise which was made unto the fathers God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children in that he hath raised up Jesus again as it is also written in the second psalm Thou art my Son this day have I begotten thee And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead now no more to return to corruption he said on this wise I will give you the sure mercies of David Wherefore he saith also in another psalm Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption For David after he had served his own generation by the will of God fell on sleep and was laid unto his fathers and saw corruption But he whom God raised again saw no corruption Be it known unto you therefore men and brethren that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins And by him all that believe are justified from all things from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
